A Houma man has been found not guilty by the reason of insanity for stabbing his mother to death in 2017. Assistant District Attorney Dennis Elfert says the judgement lined up with the defendant's plea, after four mental health professionals concluded John Monteiro III's claim of insanity is legitimate.
"They felt given his state of mind at the time of the incident, he could not form the requisite intent to commit the crime," said Elfert.
